What is MMD? MMD (MikuMikuDance) is a 3D animation software that was created for a character called Hatsune Miku (Vocaloid). The software was developed by Yu Higuchi as part of the VOCALOID Promotion Video Project (VPVP) and was released in February 2008. On this MikuMikuDance download page, we discuss some of the app’s key features, as well as some additional information.

Here are some of the main features of Miku Miku Dance:

  • Create: MikuMikuDance is perfect for anyone who wants to create manga and anime. Even though the software was originally created for Vocaloid, it is now all over the internet, with manga enthusiasts regularly posting their creations with MMD, especially on DeviantArt.

  • Framework: It is important to note that MMD is like a video game without the game: it features a powerful game-system framework. Like a modern DirectX video game, you will need a good graphic card to run it on your computer.
